Canadian Video Game Rock Nerds DOUBLE EXPERIENCE Announce USA ‘Smells Like Freedom’ Tour



Recently wrapping up their ‘Rated M For MaTour’ that included a showcase at this year’s Canadian Music Week to add their 500+ shows and collection of over 100,000 miles during their multiple past tours across Canada, the UK, and the States. Ottawa, ON video game rock nerds Double Experience are taking no time to hit the road again and going South to the USA for their ‘Smells Like Freedom Tour’ this June, which includes performances at Pegasus Records Store in Florence, AL and video game stores Game Over in Houston, TX and Austin, TX.

“Though this won’t be our first time touring in the USA, each show we booked was in a city or state we have never played before. We’ve already compiled another list of dream locations to visit based on the Food Network, too.” comments bassist Tim Kealey.

The band is gearing up for the August 1st release of their forthcoming album ‘721835′ recorded by fellow science-fiction aficionado Al Jacob (He is Legend, A Skylit Drive) in North Carolina. A curious collection of songs that are inspired by everything the band loves and considers nerdy, the album showcases a creative sound influenced by geeky comic books, trading cards, classic 8 bits games to today’s future 3D experiences to follow up their 2011 EP ‘One Big Quicksand’ recorded and produced by Jayson DeZuzio (Coheed and Cambria, My Chemical Romance) that was released via Blue Sapphire/Universal Music Canada.
